Once you have certified that you have a purebred “Biewer Terrier” you need to get a DNA profile on your dog. To order your DNA profile test, click on the following link:
There are six components to the test; 1)Ancestry Chart, 2)Single breed PCA test, 3)All breed PCA test, 4)Next closest breed PCA test, 5)Pairwise overall test, 6)Homozygosity.
You are allowed 2 "inconclusive" findings out of the 6 and will still be a purebred Biewer Terrier. Make sure you have your results reviewed before dismissing your new dog.
A dog that is 50% Biewer Terrier and 50% Yorkie or percentage of any other breed will fail and not be allowed registration.

Litter Registration Requirements:
We will be continuing the alphabetical naming system. We feel this helps the breeder keep better and more accurate records. Names can not be more than 45 characters.
Your first litter will start with the letter "A". Second litter "B" and so on.
When you receive your puppy registration certificate package, each puppy will have been assigned a registration number at that time. When the new owners send in the completed puppy registration certificate they will receive a registration certificate in their name.
1) Complete and submit Initial BTRA Litter Registration Application. When you fill out the litter application make sure you put the full name of each puppy and state whether it is Male or Female. Names can not be more than 45 characters. (We do not have much space to accommodate more characters)
2) Submit a color photo of the litter with the mother.
